My partner and I stayed here while he was in Melbourne for work - I accompanied him for leisure.
Check-in was easy enough, and we received a room upgrade. We had booked a studio queen but were put up in a two-bedroom apartment. Our room was facing the construction site next door, but we didn't experience any issues with noise. I even took a nap during the afternoon at one point to recharge for evening activities and was not disturbed at all.
The room itself was clean and well-kept with new-looking fixtures. The bathroom was a touch on the small side, with limited shelf space for personal items. However it was once again spotlessly clean, with excellent water pressure in the shower. The kitchen was well enough appointed and equipped for us to cook a simple meal in our room for our last night, and the 'real' size fridge/freezer was a definite plus.
The one big downside for us was that the bed was too soft for our liking. We sleep on a Japanese futon with flat pillows at home, so we're more accustomed to a harder mattress. We did end up taking turns sleeping on the (very firm!) sofa in the lounge area. This is a matter of personal preference though.
We didn't use facilities like the gym or pool, but we were very happy with the free wi-fi in our room, and noted the provision of toiletries, in-room slippers and an iron and ironing board.
Our favourite thing about the hotel was definitely LOCATION. We were right next to Queen Vic Markets (Market Lane Coffee and $3 boreks for breakfast HELLO) and also in easy reach of a convenience store, shops and a supermarket at Melbourne Central, and some fantastic inexpensive eateries. Tram lines were easily accessible for some short trips out to North Melbourne, Fitzroy and Brunswick.
All in all was good value and provided everything we needed without muss or fuss.
